This Time of Year

Ah, the winter blues. Being from upstate New York, you'd think that I'd be reveling in (or at least used to) my least favorite of seasons...winter. But after enduring winters that have lasted the better part of 6 months, and seeing snow in months that should never have snow (I'm looking at you April and May), I am officially over winter. I hate the snow. I hate the cold. I hate how dirty everything looks when the snow melts. I hate how bulky the winter makes my wardrobe. I hate boots. I'm such a winter diva.

With March right around the corner, I know its about barreling through and making it to the other side--spring. And to be honest, I do think that the worst is behind us, at least in my neck of the woods. But you never know. Last Friday it was nearly 70 degrees. The following Tuesday? We had snow. Hey, Mother Nature...PICK ONE!

Winter is most definitely the peak of my bitching season, and with each passing winter I swear that I could really live some place that had no winter. If I want snow... I'll go to it. 

On February 25th, 2011 I look out my window and see grey, clouds and rain. And exactly two years ago today, the view from my window looked like this... 
I'll take that February over this one any day.....

  1. Completely agree with you.. being from NH I'm no stranger to snow. But it just plain sucks. Not gonna lie... I like snow in the beginning but once Christmas is over.. I'm over the snow. WARM WEATHER, please?
